Description

Introduction

In this assessment you will be required to write an individual piece of work in the form of a report to the senior management of a medium sized company in your own region. You can write about any company of your choice and should either choose one where a good level of information is publicly available or one you work with. The company should trade locally and globally. The report will require you to analyse current issues and developments in local and global trade logistics and will use methods and techniques from the module and your own academic and practical research. You will also need to advise the company on adjusting its production schedule using an optimiser from information given in the assignment.

Scenario

You have been asked by the senior management team (SMT) to assess the best way to set up a supply chain for a new product line which the company has just finished developing and is looking to put into production. The product can be something the company is actually considering launching or something you think the company may be capable of producing in the future. For example a food company will need to launch a food product not a car and vice versa. The company will also need your help to optimise its production facility to deal with the new product.
